City councilors passes ‘Downtown Safety Zone’ proposal


Drivers will soon be required to slow down in a busy Albuquerque neighborhood. 

Councilor Isaac Benton led the charge for a “Downtown Safety Zone” in January. Monday night, city council passed the resolution. 

It calls for more on-street parking, changes to traffic signal timing, and a speed limit of just 20 mph. 

The boundary begins at the railroad tracks and Lomas and runs until Eighth Street and Coal. It is not clear when the new speed limit will take effect.
